At the start of the year the universe was calling me to write a new set of poems. I let the ideas that I had sit with me for a while and then I set about writing out what would be the storyline into what the poems would fit. It seemed the work would involve written set pieces and poetry. I was all set to go and then...... THE WORLD SEEMED TO GO CRAZY! It became clear to me that I was not being called to write out MY idea but that I needed to report on what was happening in the world and how it was making me feel.

the BLACK dog is a term used to describe depression and it a dark dog. As I started this work we are in a very dark, depressing time in the world and I had to reflect on that. So this is me, the Dark dog, barking back at the world! This is very much a live piece of work as we turn through this year. I also have my reflections in here, on my own thoughts, feelings and life. This is my heart open and my soul on show for anyone to see. It is me being brave, I hope you enjoy!


64. THE VASTNESS OF SPACE (Nine planets or more) (A poem from 94 - revised)


All those who wonder at the universe

Look up to the sky

All those who feel the connection

who name the stars at night


There is a star for everyone in the universe

For it is where we all return


Not just human life!


It is so much bigger than we imagine

With secrets safe and sound

We all THINK we know

Just how life began 


Light, stars, colours, of space

The face is now a shadow

Man has landed on the moon

It is nothing, We have so much further to go!


Live out among the stars

Trek space with wonder in our eyes

the photo of Earth sent back

She is so small, Just a speck in a galaxy


Are we alone out here?

Does anyone watch?, wait

Will we find others?

Are others already here?


Go deep into space

Nine planets or more

There has to be away

We have an open door
